Christopher Martin receives Lifetime Service Award

Christopher Martin 2010

Longtime volunteer and actor Christopher Martin received a Lifetime Service Award from Willits Community Theatre at its annual Gala Event on Saturday, June 13, 2015 at 8pm. The special performance of the current production of the WCT crime caper farce “Kill Me, Deadly” included food and drinks beforehand at 7pm for the theatre’s Lovers and Angels donors and then a presentation of the award to Martin.
Martin was honored for his more than 10 years of volunteer and stage performance work for WCT. Board of Directors member Kitty Norris says Martin was selected for his years of superlative contributions, including acting, stage managing shows and running lights and sound for productions. Norris says, “Christopher is so terrific, for all the many capacities that he’s served our theatre.”
Martin first acted in the 2004 WCT production of “Cooking With Gus.” His stage performances went on to include roles in “The Constant Wife” (2006), “Cactus Flower” (2007), “The Grass is Greener” (2008), “Alone Together” (2009), “Sylvia” (2010) and “My Three Angels” (2011). Martin also performed in staged readings of “Blithe Spirit” and Educating Rita.” His work with WCT has included stage managing productions of “Maiden and Prayer,” Willits Live” and “Greater Tuna.” Director Bill Barksdale says of Martin, “He’s absolutely one of those marvelous people who is both funny and kind and who also gives so much to our community.”
